Game Notes

TOR
•Campbell (15-2-1, 2.07 GAA, .927 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•The Leafs will be without Justin Holl for this game. Holl took a puck to the face on Saturday and is still feeling a little uncomfortable. He's not expected to miss much additional time beyond that
•Liljegren took Holl's spot at practice yesterday. It's not clear if that was as a placeholder if Holl could end up playing or if he'll suit up alongside Muzzin tonight

MTL
•Primeau (1-1-0, 2.95 GAA, .893 Sv%) will likely start for the Canadiens
•2 straight wins and Vancouver losing 4 in a row has put Montreal in a very comfortable playoff position. With Winnipeg losing 6 straight they're starting to look up in the standings as opposed to down


Injuries

•Justin Holl - Face - Day to day
•Zach Bogosian - Upper Body - Injured Reserve
•Zach Hyman - Knee - Injured Reserve
•Frederik Andersen - Lower Body - Injured Reserve
•Riley Nash - Knee - Injured Reserve
•Scott Sabourin - Hand - Injured Reserve
      
•Shea Weber - Upper Body - Questionable Monday
•Tomas Tatar - Lower Body - Questionable Monday
•Paul Byron - Lower Body - Injured Reserve
•Carey Price - Concussion - Injured Reserve
•Brendan Gallagher - Thumb - Injured Reserve
•Jonathan Drouin - Personal - Out indefinitely

I think our old man line is better than their old man line.

Minor upper body injury. Missed the Habs last two games. Questionable for tonight, I believe.

I took a quick gander at the 2017 draft thread to re-live the memory of him get drafted. 1) Our excitement of the pick was pretty funny... I still really hope he lives up that to hype. 2) I noticed that Scott Wheeler of the Athletic had Jason Robertson (Nick's older brother) as a guy the Leafs should be considering at 17. He eventually went 39th and is having a Calder-worthy rookie season right now. Would have been pretty neat to have both Robertson brothers.

5 of Winnipeg's next 6 games are against Ottawa and Vancouver. Montreal really has basically no room for error if Winnipeg can get their game back even a little.

What I'm really hoping for is for Calgary to be within 6 points going into their 3 final games with Vancouver after everyone else is done.

Yeah. That would be pretty funny - though, it would really trash the potential for the North division to be able to begin the playoffs within a few days of the rest of the league.

If that happens, I'd also like to see Vancouver within a few points of a playoff spot. Have those games basically be a potential play-in round for both teams.

Maybe if Dubas had been running the show in 17 he might have taken him. Just shows you what a crap shoot it is after the top 10. I have no doubt Liljegren will be a top 4 d man for us at some point.
